Phil Moss, chairman of the Essex CPSA committee, paid the following tribute.

“Paul was well known throughout Essex, East Anglia and the South East. He represented his county for many years, as well as winning county titles and was well respected for his competitive edge, as well as his ability and willingness to help, advise and assist any one that asked for his input at whatever level.

“He will most certainly be missed by anyone that knew him and the shooting world has lost one of its true gentlemen and ambassadors. Our thoughts and condolences go out to and are with
Paul’s family.”
